Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said it was “unacceptable” that the social media giant blocked users from sharing a Post exposé about Hunter Biden’s emails without providing a clear message as to why it was taking the action.
He’s not sorry about the banning, just the communication.
Dorsey put this out last night:
“Our communication around our actions on the @nypost article was not great. And blocking URL sharing via tweet or DM with zero context as to why we’re blocking: unacceptable,” Dorsey wrote in the tweet.
Communication isn’t the issue, censorship is. You can read the rest of @Jack’s message below and he is not sorry at all.
Josh Hawley, in particular, was incensed as people lost the use of their Twitter feed for tweeting links to the NY Post article. He sent a letter to the FEC calling for immediate action against Twitter for financial election interference.
Brit Hume responds perfectly:
No amount of “great” communicating would make suppressing a newspaper article acceptable, especially since Twitter was for two years an open sewer of misinformation about Trump-Russia collusion. https://t.co/9EqRjCagfV

While Maddow and her conspiracies or her hacked Trump tax returns aren’t banned, a major newspaper’s articles are banned.
They tried to hide this story from everyone and now everyone knows about it.
Dullard true believers with dreams of apparatchik or nomenklatura status will rally around Uncle Joe but no one who wants to live in a representative constitutional republic will.
Infuriating, disgusting and disgraceful as this current attack by social media platformson our First Amendment rights may be, it ALSO may be the BEST thing to happen in a very long time. At least since Nov. 8, 2016.
Crafty and evil as the Left may be, and they are, they always seem to suffer the same, fatal flaw … THEY GO WAY TOO DAMNED FAR.
And why not? They become blatantly reckless because WHO IS GOING TO HOLD THEM TO ACCOUNT?
YEARS ago I argued, THE most dangerous of America’S ENEMIES IS our MSM. Social Media merely an enormous off-shoot of that media.
For many DECADES, the Left has dominated everything we hear, see. And it’s not JUST that they provide half truths or “reports,” heavily massage to meet their agendas, but WHAT THEY REFUSE to report.
Exactly how long has this been going on? While it may be impossible to offer a precise date and time, I suggest the bell weather moment which SHOULD have sounded EVERY alarm was immediately following WWII.
The NY Times, long considered the standard bearer for news, following WWII and the shocking, HORRENDOUS acts against humanity committed by Hitler and his Nazi regime, decline … no, REFUSED to report. Their few, gratuitous “blurbs,” buried near the BACK of the paper was all they could manage.
After SIX LONG YEARS at World War, MILLIONS of innocent people brutally tortured and murdered in ways no decent human being could ever, even imagine … after 12 MILLION of our men and women, sent off to war in what can only be summed up as a quinessential battle against Good and Evil… the NY Times DID NOT REPORT in any meaningful way.
Obviously, I was not yet born at that time but, I myself have noted for MANY years, the extent of which our Media has grown every more corrupted. In fact, IMO, nearly EVERY great misfortune which has befallen America, has in some way, to some degree, been delivered at the hands of a maniacal, perverted MSM.
2016 Russia meddled in our elections …not only is that NOT NEW, not ONLY have they attempted to meddle in our elections since WWII, but (now take a breath) AMERICA has most DEFINITELY meddled in dramatic ways in many foreign elections. Ironically, Obama was a meddling CHAMP in numerous foreign elections, often at the expense of the American tax payer. And AWLAYS in ways which did NOT bode well for our country.
btw, there is no group of people in America who HELPED, FOMENTED and FURTHERED Putin’s PUNY meddling attempts than THE DEMOCRATS, THE MSMS and Elitist, betraying RINOs.
What we witnessed yesterday with social media blatantly blocking, banning the NY Post article, their shutting down of many accounts among them, THE PRESIDENT’S WH PRESS SECRETARY, and they limited the account OF THE PRESIDENT HIMSELF … this was just emblematic of what the MSM has been doing for MANY DECADES.
The media enjoys special constitutional protections that our 1st A never be under assault. They SHOULD have lost those protections many years ago … social media platforms should NEVER BEEN GIVEN those protestions.
As of this minute, approx. 96% of every news story, every morsel of information given to the American people are utterly and completely edited and monitored by a small handful of Oligarchs … Billionaires ALL of whom have long ago jointed with Democrats, ALL of whom share just one, primary, overarching goal of which their EVERY thought and deed is dedicated:
The Transformation of America into an UNOPPOSED, SINGLE PARTY MARXIST STYLE OF GOVT.
Maybe we should ban Twitter and FB.
